SSA
Mission is to

Promote Yachting in the regions, areas and among people where it is not popular yet. This is an excellent activity for individuals and families. Helps to develop respect to other people and nature.

Educate those who decided to occupy themselves with water sports. Water sport activities
provide a lot of fun, but we need to obtain some preparation to enjoy it to a full extent.

Standardise training worldwide. We are committed to assist the ISSA schools to maintain
the highest and most modern standards of education. We are also open to help those who
are not associated. With safety being the main priority.

Exchange
Cultural Experiences between various countries. As an organisation present on
most of the continents we aim to contribute to mutual understanding of people originating
from different cultures.

Training I was lucky enough to learn sailing from two masters: 1) AMM. Ferdinando Lolli 2) Eng. Ferdinando Dandini . • Two navigation experts who have taught me and pass on part of their experience to me. AMM. Lolli over 50 years unparalleled connoisseur and expert of every aspect of civil and military nautical. The engineer Ferdinando Dandini has been a sailor since he was a boy with over 50 years of experience in regattas and crossings of various types. We need to remember what the regatta sailor was, a figure that has disappeared today; In those days, professionalism in the modern sense did not exist and there were no sponsors. Every large racing boat usually had two sailors, who lived with and for the boat twelve months of the year, as long as the boat was still in the yard. In difficult navigation conditions, the elderly sailor became the real skipper. In an age of great social differences in yachting, the racing sailor was invariably descended from generations of fishermen; • Non-competitive racer (with family crew) since 1986 on the Tyrrhenian Sea on boats from 23' to 34' Navigation in Dalmatia for 4 weeks every year since 2001; 200 to 800 log miles per season.
